Casadesus Praises Students
By CAROL PRINS
Entering his dressing room dur-
ing intermission of his Hill Audi-
torium concert Monday, Robert
Casadesus remarked "Listen to the

one hundredth anniversary of the
famous composer is being cele-
brated this year.
"The same program was per-
formed in Italy, Scotland, Ger-
many and now the United States,"
Waving his cigarette with ner-

pianist continued "Chopin, Mozart
and Beethoven are all among my
He smiled "Considering every-
thing, Mozart is the finest, the
string quality, orchestration, every-
thing is good. It is difficult to ex-
plain, it is something one feels."
Student audiences are the same
in California, in Ann Arbor and
New York, the greying Frenchman
said, his blue eyes sparkling.
"They are always the most re-
ceptive of my audiences."
Home at Princeton
Casadesus, his wife and three
children make their winter home

versity in Princeton, New Jersey.

It was natural for Casadesus to
enter a musical career since the
family has been famous in the cul-
tural life of France for generations.
Among these are Francois Louis

founder, and director of the Amer-
ican Conservatory of Fontaine-
bleau, Henri Gustave Casadesus,

probably the greatest joy in a
pianist's life to be so well received
in so many places."
Casadesus is a composer as well
as musician. His Double Concerto
for Two Pianos and Orchestra was
written especially for performance
by him and his wife, Gaby, who is
a soloist in her own right.
Officer of the Legion of Honor
from France and Commander of
the Order of Orange Nassau from
the Netherlands have been con-
ferred upon the pianist.
His critics have called his per-
formances "the most beautiful
piano playing of the century."
